Nutritional Therapy is not as simple as being told what to eat and when; what foods are good for you and what to do if you want to lose weight or ‘get healthy’. The objective is to identify what imbalance is causing or contributing to a specific health condition and manage it in a maintainable way.
Your journey will start with an 1.5 hour initial consultation where we will get to know each other, understand what you are trying to achieve and delve deep into your health history. Prior to your consultation, you will be required to complete a medical history and lifestyle questionnaire and a 3 day food diary to ensure our time together can be utilised effectively.
Following all initial consultations, you will receive explanations of dietary and lifestyle factors that may be contributing to any symptoms along with a personalised dietary programme designed to meet your requirements.
The number of consultations necessary depends upon your individual circumstances, although it is advisable to be seen within 6 weeks of each appointment. During follow-up consultations, your progress will be assessed with any nutritional and supplement programme adjusted accounting for progress and any remaining or new concerns.
In some cases I may also refer you for a test if I feel it would allow us to gain further information about the health issue we are targeting. I have partnered with Medichecks who I can request whichever tests we agree that you would like to go forth with. These can be done in the comfort of your own home or in partner London clinics by a qualified nurse.
